Local charities had more than one million reasons to celebrate Thursday at Scotiabank Place.

At its annual Hockey Country beneficiary day, the Sens Foundation distributed $1,007,350 to 46 local charitable organizations. The latest funding announcement pushes the foundation and Ottawa Senators' total contribution to community initiatives to more than $50 million since the club's return to the National Hockey League in 1992.

"This is the fun thing we get to do as board members of the foundation – give away money," said Roy Mlakar, president and CEO of the Senators and Scotiabank Place. "Since 1992, we've given away over $50 million to the community, second only to the United Way as a charitable fundraiser. We take a lot of pride in that."

Sens Foundation president Danielle Robinson lauded the efforts of the charitable organizations represented at today's event, which take in a wide cross-section of the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

"Our commitment and passion to this work, through and with organizations such as yours, to change everyday lives in this community is very special," said Robinson. "We commend you for the work that you undertake in the community day in and day out, and we're so proud of our shared pursuit with you in these aims.

"Our success is not ours alone. As a foundation, we depend on many things: The support of our corporate partners, the collaborative efforts of charitable organizations and a committed team of volunteers and staff who make sure that everything runs smoothly. We are united in the community."
